    I am never sure about doing animals in B&W but tried to save some shots by desaturation a couple of times, these are the results.

    The first is a little blurry IMO, but I love the second one inparticular. The third one comes in second.

    Many thanks mark. are the blurrs because of where i burnt the bottom left corner or just the sharpness in general? If i havnt resized it propperly with luck i can probably do something about it as the original looks sharp on the feathers :)

    Im gunna have to say it is the sharpness in general. If might just be my screen, but particularly in the eye. Might want to get a second opinion just incase. It kind of works in this particular situation, though.

    These look pretty good. Usually people make animal shots in color, because of the colors. But you just showed us it can be done in b&w too. Looks pretty cool in the iguana and the polar bear shot.
